The plastic surgery on Tuesday was pretty complicated, and right now I feel very much like the Bride of Frankenstein.
The area to cover was about the size of a quarter, so they had to use a grafting process I was not familiar with.
They took tissue from the forehead, and turned it and covered the nose. So, there is a little flap at the bridge of my nose for now. I have about a dozen or so little stitches on my forehead and then, or course the graft.
But, I tell myself that the cancer is gone and I am a lucky girl!
Here is a little funny thing. As I was being wheeled in to surgery, I must have fallen asleep, as I remember nothing of actually going into the surgical suite. I also remember nothing until I came to in recovery.
Recovery will be long, but I’m prepared. I’m putting in a small photo, but if you want to see details click on it and it should take you right to it.
